When I was a young probationary officer, my tutor constable had a prior engagement to go to so he dropped me at a road junction and told me to stop vehicles and report any offences, he would collect me in around half an hour. I stopped a van for having a defective light. The crusty old driver decided to kick off, the usual, "haven't you any real villains to catch" etc. etc. I asked him his name and snappily he replied "it's on the van", I wandered round the van came back and casually asked "and what's you first name Mr. Transit". He was not amused and made an official complaint. I received a verbal warning from my Divisional Superintendent, with a grin on his face.
